Had this one tonight as I wasn't in the mood for a Sea Monster Stout. Poured into a Shaker pint glass, I got a four finger head. Color was a nice deep yellow. Initially clear, when the head subsided and I poured the rest of the bottle into the glass, it became slightly hazy.
Aroma was of sweet malt, doughy, definitely prominent yeast, and a hint of spiciness.
Taste was off a bit. It started somewhat more bitter than the nose indicated. This was followed by sweet malt, then a little bit of spiciness. Finish was medicinal and somewhat solvent-like. But not ethyl alcohol.
Mouthfeel put me off. A little thin, but it left a coating on the inside of my mouth that was somewhat slimy. Not the worst feeling I've ever gotten from a beer, but I can only think of two beers that were worse.
Drinkability was really bad. This was damn near a drain pour. I was seriously tempted, I really was. But I hate to waste beer, even bad beer. Fortunately, I can down a pint in less than two seconds if I need to. With this one, I needed to.

Verboten has a hazy, peach and copper body with a large and dense, just off-white head. Head has great retention, becoming rocky as it recedes, and leaves heavy lacing. Most noticeable in the aroma is the expected spicy yeasty, with coriander and a bit of clove and pepper. Also has a good deal of fruit in it, including apple, banana, and lemon.
Taste starts with assertive and dry yeast, moving to white pepper and clove. Then banana, orange peel, lemon, and sour apple in the middle, with a dry, yeasty, slightly citric, crisp finish. Mouthfeel is light with very high carbonation, a touch of graininess.
